Trump Just Made Immigration Deal He Wants Harder to Reach

"They applied for DACA in reliance on the government's representations that information provided under the program would not be used for purposes of immigration enforcement".

But a poll released Thursday shows almost 4 in 5 voters want to permanently protect so-called "Dreamers" but disagree about building a border barrier at all. "The iron is hot".

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin introduced new tax withholding guidelines from the IRS during a press conference at the White House on January 11, 2018.

"We do not recall the president saying these comments specifically, but what he did call out was the imbalance in our current immigration system, which does not protect American workers and our national interest", the statement said.

Congress ought to take Trump up on his offer: Send him a DACA fix right away and get back to work on comprehensive immigration reform.

An immigration package "must be part of a global deal on the budget", Schumer said.

Separately, Durbin told reporters he had not seen a single news report about the President's words that was false. Unlike health care or tax reform, the immigration bill would only pass with 60 votes, Flake and Graham repeated. That second bill would likely face long odds for passage, considering long-running disagreements over issues like how to handle all 11 million immigrants illegally in the U.S. We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act-the areas outlined by the President.

Republicans controlling Congress have resisted combining immigration and the budget into one bill.

"Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country", Trump added later.

U.S District Judge William Alsup of the Northern District of California ruled Tuesday that the program must continue and those already approved for DACA protections and work permits must be allowed to renew them before they expire. That issue is now front and center on Capitol Hill as Democrats want it made law without conditions, but the president wants his border wall and other enforcement policies put in place.

Trump said it need not be a "2,000-mile wall".

Better yet, if he thinks the wall is so important, the president could pay for it himself. He'd made similar statements past year, but this time it was in the context of negotiations for actual legislation. So why are politicians from both parties trying to jam it down our throats?

There was panic; people shouting, screaming", one of the passengers, Fatma Gordu, told state-run news agency Anadolu . The cause of the incident was not known but an investigation is under way, the governor said.

Trump's response Friday morning was particularly notable after White House spokesperson Raj Shah did not deny the "shithole" remark on Thursday evening. But one conservative foe of giving ground acknowledged the impact of Trump's support. Voters say that immigrants who were brought here as kids should be allowed to live out their adult lives here as citizens, ' said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

And yet, despite the fact that everyone in politics knows what Trump said (and meant), the response from Republican leaders was stunningly quiet.

The proposal presented by the bipartisan Gang of Six was a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children - beyond just those who were enrolled in DACA when it ended, according to lawmakers and sources familiar with the meeting.

Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill.), however, said Trump did make the comments.

Conservatives quickly sounded alarms about a process that would lead to a comprehensive agreement on immigration, a path that has always been anathema to many rank-and-file Republicans. "I've said it again and again that, unfortunately, a lot of the conversation in Washington politicizing the [immigration] issue has shadowed what undocumented communities experience every day", Kim said.
